Our FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH newsletter is FREE. Social traditions today are being disrupted with challenges coming from many directions. Each issue of FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH contains a perspective on a current events topic, as well as information about new items on the uniquereads.com website. Very few people will find the articles boring. More likely, strong feelings of either agreement or disagreement will arise.
The intent of the newsletter is to challenge the reader to think through the logic of the issue under discussion, and to find the perspective that either proves or disproves the premise of the topic. We hope that this process might lead to a deeper understanding of a disruptive path or a mainstream belief, counteracting the destructive and narrow-minded hysteria of today.
